The little girl walks beside her Father, hand in his. The path is unfamiliar. The thought bothers her. As she ponders this, her face grows troubled.
“Daddy?” she asks. Her little chin quivers.
“Yes sweetie?” He smiles down at her warmly, his heart bursting with how precious she looks next to him.
“How do I know if I’m going the right way?” Her panicked eyes search his as the fear is uncovered.
“Just keep your hand in mine, princess. I know where we’re going.”
The worried expression melts into a trusting smile. Her grip tightens. Peace washes over her. Her Father can be trusted.
Oh, that I would just understand this picture.
This post will be short, as I have so little time these days, but rest assured, I’m still writing. I’m just mostly working on my book and putting thoughts too private to share in my journal.
However, I’m in a good place these days.
Sometimes I worry about those who go silent online, so I just figured I should say something about my recent silence. This is just for a season… I really want to get my book finished.
To be honest, I have four books going at once. One is almost done. Two are half done. The fourth is just barely started. They are all so different from each other. They are geared to different audiences, age groups, and written for entirely different reasons. I do this so I can keep writing. So that when I’m in a magical world sort of mood, I can write. When I’m in a spiritual moment, I can write. When I am thinking of political and culturally relevant matters, I write. When my heart is heavy, I write. When I’m feeling silly, I write.
No matter how I feel, there’s a book to be written.
So, you can see why I’ve been quiet here lately. I apologize to those who’ve missed me. Regular posting and reading others blogs will resume in a month or two. I do miss those I’ve connected with on WordPress.
Keep writing, your words matter. And your perseverance inspires many. We need each other desperately. Thanks for sticking around.
